Personally, I hate going to the gym. I’d much rather actually be outside in nature, in the fresh air, than stuck in a sterile gym, that could be anywhere in the world.
Part of the reason I hate the gym is because of the other gym goers. Some of them are just so annoying. Well, I hate to stereotype, but I bet you’ve encountered one or two of these on your gym visits:
1) The contortionist yogi
There’s always one taking over the mat area with their incredible feats of flexibility defying the laws of gravity
2) The resident
They’re always there. Always! Everyone knows them – and surely, they must actually live there?
3) The hoarder
That weight you want to use? Yep, he’s hanging onto it, he might need it later. You can’t have it.
4) The sweat monster
We all sweat, but the sweat monster takes it to a whole new level. And never has a towel. Good luck getting on the machines you want after him
5) The model
Always wearing something different from lululemon with matching trainers and nail varnish
6) The always-skips-leg-day
You know the one, he’s always working on those muscles up top
7) The texter
Always on their phone. Always. Presumably to keep their facebook friends updated about their workout.
8) Mr oh so hairy
And why is it the hairiest always wear the briefest of outfits?
9) The selfie queen
You’re sure you saw her load a few extra weights on, take a photo, then walk off
10) Mr. doesn’t want to be here
But he has to be. So he reads a book on the machines and barely breaks into a sweat.
11) The water fountain junkie
He’s always there. Always.
12) The expert
Whatever you’re doing, you’re doing it wrong – and rest assured they’ll let you know about it.
13) Miss competitive
Just because you’re on the next treadmill does not mean we’re racing.
14) The grunter
He’s a warrior and don’t you know it
15) Mr. farts when he squats
Admit it, you laughed when you heard him
16) Miss Perfectly made up
You’ve seen them, perfectly applied make up and just-out-of-the-saloon-hair. And what’s more bizarre is not a hair out of place, or smudge to be seen after a workout.
17) The ten minute man
He’s just arrived before he’s off again. The ultimate in power workouts
18) The cardio bunny
Exclusively treadmill with a bit of (fast) bike and cross trainer to mix it up a bit
19) Free trial Kyle
Never more than 7 days in any one gym – one the free trial is over, he’s off to a new trial at a new gym
